Well, we've been kayaking, sailing, snorkeling, hiking, and pretty much adventuring the heck out of Virgin Gorda so we thought we'd take a little day-trip to nearby (30 min ferry ride) Road Town on the island of Tortola.
I knew it would be a lot busier than VG with traffic, more people, etc. When we arrived it felt worse than I had expected. We immediately headed the wrong direction - towards the busy, crazy, not-like-Virgin-Gorda part of town. I was ready to head back on the next ferry. But we turned around, came back closer to the ferry dock we had arrived at, and went the other direction...ahhhh, that's better.
Stick to old Main Street - directly behind the Pusser's General Store (you'll see this place when you arrive, it's across the street from the ferry dock).
Bamboushay had great coffee...
This place had great spices & gifts...
Pusser's had great rum...
There were lots of great alleys to explore...
We discovered some historic buildings farther down main street...
...and a great view of the harbor. I guess the big city wasn't so bad after all!
